    Forum GI Bill Funds Wasted on Substandard Colleges, Investigation Finds In 2008, Congress passed a new GI Bill that, for the first time since World War II, promised to pay the full cost of a college education for veterans. But a report by the Center for Investigative Reporting finds that more than $600 million of that money has been spent on California schools that have graduation rates so low, or loan-default rates so high, that they don't meet state standards for aid. The report contends that the GI Bill is pouring money into for-profit colleges that often leave veterans with worthless degrees and few job prospects.

    City Arts & Lectures Extracting DNA: The Power to Restore Life A National Geographic emerging explorer, MacArthur Fellow and professor in the department of ecology and evolutionary biology at UC Santa Cruz, Beth Shapiro aims to better understand how populations and species change through time in response to changes in their habitat. Through her explorations of prehistoric DNA, Shapiro develops important new approaches for inferring the factors that shape the dynamics of species' populations. She is able to observe mammoths and dodos, witness the last ice age and study the eventual arrival of humans in North America. Her research with ancient DNA takes her on a journey through time that gives science and society a whole new view of our tumultuous past and a potentially life changing reality for our future.On April 8, 2014 Beth Shapiro appeared in conversation with Michael Krasny, host of KQED's Forum. He is also a professor of English at San Francisco State University and the author of "Spiritual Envy: an Agnostic's Quest" and "Off Mike: A Memoir of Talk Radio and Literary Life."
